Poptropica Updates and Popping One Year for Slippery Raptor’s Blog!

Hey guys! Slippery here. I’m really really sorry if I haven’t posted these past few weeks. Well, I have reasons why I didn’t post backā€”well, I recently got sick, I got busy with school works and we had our exams last week. So, I hope that can patch things up. šŸ™‚

First of all, I would like to celebrate a special milestone on this blog. Last 18 January 2015, this blog celebrated its first year on WordPress! I would like thank all of the people who helped me reach this goal! There’s a lot of things that happened to me this yearā€” from the start of this blog, then I was invited to join several blogs, and we reached whooping 4,000 hits! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to throw a party since the timing was a little off but I’ll be having something new!

Now, let’s head on to the updates!

Last January 8, the second episode of Arabian Nights is finally released to all! Don’t forget to bring your thieves’ garb, magic lamp, gunpowder and a lot of courage inside the thieves’ lair!

Along with the release of “Lair of Thieves”, the Pop-App was updated and the second episode of PoptropiConā€” Spoiler Alert, was available!

A few days later, Poptropica has upgraded their home page! Every time you log-in on Poptropica, you will see something new!

Here are the the major changes on the Poptropica homepage:

  • The homepage now has an image header featuring the new Poptropica logo with some clouds and the blimp with it.
  • It also features some of the links that lead to the Parent page, Membership page, App page and even the blog.
  • There is a new yellow play button that you can click before logging in to Poptropica.
  • Before you click the yellow “Play Now!” button, the homepage has a carousel featuring the latest news.
  • There is a larger link to the Creator’s Blog and it is a bit longer than the old one.
  • The homepage also features different islands listed in three categories: Newest, Classic and Popular! (It’s very awesome to see that the most popular islands in Poptropica are the Classic ones.)

Along with the new homepage, Poptropica added several Pop Quizzes on the homepage. šŸ™‚

After a few days, Poptropica added three new GHD freebies and another freebie! The F.R.E.D. Follower, GHD Printable Poster, Galactic Space Suit and Make Your Own Neon Wiener!

The Creators also confirmed that Galactic Hot Dogs Island will be released this Thursday, 29 January 2015 to members and 19 February for non-members. (Thanks to the PHB for the image!)

Since we’re talking about GHD, Poptropica released the trailer for the upcoming island! Noodly Poptropica Arms. Haha.

Last but never the least, Poptropica Realms is now out to all! Poptropica Realms is basically Poptropica Land but you can have realms of your own to create, explore and even share.

Poptropica Realms consists of seven different biomes (forest, ice, desert, swamp, lunar, fire and crystal) and each of the biomes has its own unique soundtrack and no more looping bird chirps! The Realms also have some odd names likeĀ Shauroasso,Ā Boaseetour Zaukeack andĀ Theelzai Huwumoo. Poptropica Realms also removed the “save” option and the way to level up here is to build and build. You collect 10 Poptaniums when you find one and spend 1 Poptanium every time you build something.

That’s all of the major updates these past few weeks! I hope that can fill up everything I forgot to post. Thank you for making a great year with me here on Slippery Raptor’s Blog and…

Happy First Year Anniversary to Slippery Raptor’s Blog!

Poptropica Realms, Arabian Nights and More Updates!

Hey guys! Slippery here. It’s already 2015 and I’m still catching up with the latest Poptropica news. XD

Anyways, let’s start!

First of all, the Creators have finally updated the Poptropica Realms page and added a teaser for the new version of Poptropica Land! They’ve also confirmed that Poptropica Realms will be open to all (of course, there will still be some member privileges). Check out the teaser trailer below!

Moving along, the first episode of Arabian Nights: How Bazaar, is finally released to iOS! Android users can also update the Poptropica App so that you can play the first episode of Arabian Nights and find out the thieves’ lair!

Next! There is a new advertisement in Poptropica’s Main Streets and advertisement spaces and it’s Galactic Hot Dogs! The exterior of the advertisement shows the Neon Wiener with a large hole behind it and it’s smoking. Cosmoe will tell you that a “horde of aliens” wants to squash you and invites you to enter the Neon Wiener! Shall we enter? You will also watch a short clip of the Neon Wiener blasting off to space!

As you enter the Neon Wiener, you will see Humphree on your right and F.R.E.D on your left. You may talk to them if you want to. Moving along, you can also spot some costumizable mannequins (Cosmoe and Humphreefor boys, while Princess Dagger and Evil Queen Dagger for girls) and you can save the costumes on your closet!

To your right, you will see Princess Dagger and Cosmoe guarding the Mega Dog. Don’t touch the Mega Dog or else! Continue to your right and you can spot a door. If you would try to click it (even if it said “Do Not Open”) you can have a chance to a have a momentous battleĀ scene with the Jacks and the gang! Awesome, right?

Then, Poptropica tweetedĀ some behind-the-scenes moments, release dates and revelations!

First off, Poptropica recently announced that after the release of the final episodes PoptropiCon and Arabian Nights, Poptropica would bring back full islands and episodic islands will have its own break. (Credits to the PHB and Samwow5)

Also, the penultimateĀ episode of Arabian Nights, will be released this Thursday, 8 January 2015. There was a small confusion on the schedule and the episode release was moved to Jan. 8 instead of Dec. 30.

Speaking of Arabian Nights, the Creators also announced that the final episode of Arabian Nights is going to be released on February 26, 2015! The genie! šŸ™‚

Last but not the least, Poptropica also tweeted a concept art for Poptropica Comics.Ā Maybe it’s for the cover of the upcoming graphic novel?
